Playing  Different Tee Boxes

As you all know we now have a handicapping system – using the WHS approaches – that allows us to calculate individual playing handicaps for each course and each tee box of each course. This allows individual golfers to nominate which tee box on which course they wish to play on the day. However after lengthy discussions we have decided to introduce one basic constraint to be applied to Men in this situation. 
For handicapping and daily prizes a male golfer can only elect to play from the red tees where they have a playing handicap of 28 or greater. If a male golfer with a handicap of less than 28 still elects to play from the red tees that golfer will not be eligible for any prizes (2’s, Near Pins, daily Stableford or Medal) and the score will not be used for handicapping purposes.  

World Handicapping System

In theory all scores are to be counted towards your handicap, and your best 8 scores out of your last 20 scores are averaged out to find your handicap index. At present, score cards are to be verified by another player before they are entered in to the system and at present handicap Master does not have the facility of allowing players to enter their away scores from non-golf society games. While we have requested this facility, this means that practically, with all the roll ups and games around Hua Hin, if we were to enter every member’s score cards from all the roll ups and private games, a committee member would be spending at least 2 hours a day on the computer just doing this.
We have an agreement with Butterfly Rock Golf Society and Saen Suk Golf Society to accept scores from their competitions and to compare handicaps between people who are member of all societies. In the near future, after all three societies are using the WHS, we will synchronize handicaps, so as we are all playing with the same handicaps, no matter which society we are playing with on the day.
